Obori Soma Ware White Glazed Cup


An Obori Soma ware cup fired in the late Edo period. This piece was made before the production of their famous “Ao-Hibi (Blue crackle)”, which later became the main design of the Obori Soma ware. Using grits mixed clay, it has a rounded waist, and a lip is gently everted. The bluish opaque ash glaze is reminiscent of the Katade-type, coarse porcelain of the Joseon dynasty, and the skin has a beautiful scarlet stain.

There is a minor chip on the outer lip. There is a single hairline, but it only passes through the outer surface on the lip side. Other than kiln scratches and grits, there are no noticeable defects.
